Programme Pedagogy

Case Study Pedagogy

The case study method dives into complicated business issues faced by top executives. A case study is a decision problem that the learner needs to solve as a chief decision-maker with aid of peer group brainstorming, viewpoints and counterpoints. Through conversations with the faculty and peer group, the case study approach aids in the development of knowledge and skill sets.

Executive Peer Group Interactions

AMP allows you to engage and share ideas with a group of peers outside your organization. During the program, you will work with a smaller group to:

  • Gain new insights from executives who span industries and countries.
  • Exchange different perspectives during the case study discussions
  • Present your findings and choices on the case study issues in a group setting.
  • Receive constructive feedback from peers.
Business Simulations

Business simulations are a realistic, relevant, and engaging way to learn. A simulation provides hands-on experience to a participant playing variety of roles that helps them make complicated business decisions. Participants take on role-play as entrepreneurs, investors, and potential workers dealing with the challenges of negotiating agreements, determining the proper personnel balance, forming connections, and making key early choices that impact long-term success.

Learning Between Sessions

Between in-class sessions, you will have the chance to put what you have learned into practice at work. You will also get the chance to reflect on your job and offer new perspective to your company.
